Tigerman  was a "white youth who has been raised by natives, and who rules the jungle with his tamed Bengal tiger, Balu." (And, of course, his friend Rangoo, the chimp. Can't forget about Rangoo.) Interestingly, Tigerman's features and his adventure are clearly set in the jungles of India, rather than Africa. Because of the setting Tigerman is therefore a lift of Mowgli from The Jungle Book, rather than a copy of Tarzan. He has all of the skills of Lord Greystoke, though.
